Q. My male poodle tied with my rat terrier. She had her pants on and he managed to manuever aroud the tail hole. Should I abort this litter today?
ear Mr. Frawley,

I have searched through your Q&A for an answer to my question regarding an accidental breeding but did not find an answer that I was satisfied with so I wanted to write you.

I am a relatively new breeder of rat terriers and toy poodles. My terrier bitch has been breeding with my terrier male since last Thursday, 6/25/09; and today, 6/29/09, was a day that I wanted to skip, after talking with another experienced breeder. I put the pants on the bitch and was in the process of putting the pants on the male. While I was doing this, my male poodle tied with this bitch. She had her pants on and he managed to manuever aroud the tail hole. So, my question is, is this potential litter now going to have poodle genes in it? I do not want to have mixed breeding and certainly don't want dogs that carry other breeds of dogs in their genes. Should I abort this litter today? The bitch has been bred twice each day since Thursday, June 25th. I don't want to put my bitch through the pregnancy if these puppies are going to be mixed breed. Nor do I want the expense of raising these pups up until I give them away for free.

Thanks so much,
Kathy

A. It is very likely you can have pups from both males. All you have to do is to DNA test each of the pups to determine who the fathers are. You will of course have to have the males DNA tested.

Check the AKC web site to figure out how to do this.

Regards,
Ed Frawley

Feeding tube is 16 inches long (41cm) and approximately 3/32 inches (2.7mm) outside diameter. It is best to store your feeding tube and syringe at normal room temperature. In colder temperatures the feeding tube will become rigid and stiff. At body temperature, the tube becomes softer, resilient, and completely flexible. Syringe is 35cc and attaches to the integral funnel end of the feeding tube. The opposite end of the feeding tube has a closed rounded tip with 2 side port 'eyes'.
